We welcome all guests (singing or non-singing) to our weekly evening rehearsals. They take place every Tuesday from 7:00-9:45 pm in the multi-purpose room at the Parkview Christian Church, 201 W. Ustick Road, Meridian Id.
As you enter the multi-purpose room, you will be greeted by a member of the chorus at the guest table. He will welcome you, issue you a guest book and answer any questions you may have.
The Director or Assistant Director will do a voice placement exercise asking you to match a pitch that he sings or plays, giving you a chance to demonstrate the extent of your range. When done he will help you find a place on the risers.
You will be invited to sing most of the songs along with us, and you will be acknowledged, along with the other guests, at the end of the rehearsal.
If, after visiting a couple of rehearsals, you decide that you're interested in becoming a member of the group on an ongoing basis, our Chapter Development Vice President will provide you with all the information about the chapter and the Society, along with information about costs, benefits, and auditioning. You don't need to be an outstanding singer (although it helps), and you don't need to be able to read music (although it helps, and we'll try to give you opportunities to develop that skill).
If you decide to join us (and we hope that you do), we will schedule an audition for you with our Music Leadership Team, probably before a rehearsal. They will ask you to sing a song (The Story of the Rose) with three of our members. You don't need to sing it perfectly (but it helps), we only want to get an idea of how well you can learn music and how independently you can sing your part.
